There is a Pinot-like transparency shot through the attractive deep ruby colour of this wine. The nose is an enticing mix of fruit, herbs and spice – raspberry and plum, black cherry, bay leaf and black tea, curry leaf and vanilla. The palate is fresh with bright, juicy acidity deepening into richer red fruit textures that evoke pleasing memories of childhood confections, and resolving with some chalky shiraz tannin that prolongs the finish and reasserts the spicy complexity in this eminently drinkable blend. The overall balance indicates great potential for medium term cellaring.
Pair with saltbush lamb.
